Rebecca B., who reviewed the new spot on March 6, wrote, "We ordered the coconut shrimp appetizer to share, butter chicken, chicken tikka masala and garlic naan. Our main courses were served in the cutest metal bowls. Everything was absolutely delicious — probably the best garlic naan we've ever had. The service was fast and friendly."
Yelper Roderick M. added, “Stopped by on a quiet Thursday and found it was happy hour with half priced appetizers, which led us to try a lot of things. Everything was great, and the flavors were fresh and clear. ... We also got the fish pakora, lamb chettinad, vegetable jafrezi, garlic naan, Kashmiri naan and chai. ... Literally everything was great.”
